Enjoying a evening with a friend.
Phenomenal. Hit every mark. Food was perfection, ambiance was
Great food and service every time I visit here. Never a disappointment.
Love Buddakan! We dined indoors right after the restrictions were lifted and restaurants could resume indoor dining. Place was very clean, the tables were spaced out, etc. The food and drinks are always amazing and our service was great. We joked about going back the next day to get more edamame dumplings. These are a must try if you go!!
The servicer could have been better. We felt rushed. We had to be waited to get seated. Policy specifically shows the grace period to hold a table is 15 minutes but that should be in both sides. We were early and waited patiently. Felt great to be back inside.
What an amazing time we had celebrating our anniversary! The food was sensational and the service extraordinary! Our waiter Dave went above and beyond! He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, courteous and spot-on regarding the food recommendations! We heeded his suggestions and had one of the best meals we’ve ever had! We’ll definitely be returning again soon! Be sure to ask dor Dave!
Keep up the great work!!
Bring back king crab leg tempura when you can
Love Buddakan, great service great drinks great food every single time!!!
We enjoyed the service and the food. They have an great setup for outdoor dining so you stay nice and warm. Our server Isaiah made the dinner especially nice. He was one of the best waiters we had ever. You made the experience fun. Will definitely go back again soon.
Perfect dining experience. The food is exquisite.
Outside dining was great! We really enjoyed the outing. And the doughnuts!
Suzanne was amazing! I enjoyed my birthday despite the new normal of the world. She managed to get a hint from my significant other that I was my birthday and I really enjoyed the surprise that came out with dessert. I can say that she pays attention to details, and her service was impeccable.
Much slower than past visits but it looked like there was only one waiter...we were outside
Took a while to get our drinks and waiter had no personality
We sat outside in one of the pods that are supposed to be heated. Ours wasn’t. It was freezing. Friends of ours were sitting in another pod and when they were leaving they told us their waitress brought them a space heater. Our waiter never offered us a heater. Our waiter also messed up our bill. I understand that the times we are living in are very tough but I thought Buddakan would have had it together better.
It was great to be able to eat at a restaurant albeit outside. Little cold and it appeared that the menu was shortened due to covid restrictions
Great dinner - a bit cold outside tonight even with a heater but we enjoyed ourselves and the staff was great
One of our fave places to eat but can’t wait to get back indoors (as I’m sure the staff prefers too!)
Highly recommend the chicken, the edamame dumplings and the filet
So good..quality never changes! Their ceaser salad adds a touch of just the right spice.
Please bring back the Five Spice Duck w/Scallion spoon bread. :)
Service not as good as previously. Flat experience
Outside tent was good. Food was delicious-prices are high but overall a great dinner.
Absolutely Amazing! Not enough words to explain how outstanding the food and experience was, even for being outside in the COLD!
Food was delicious as always! They did a great job setting up the outdoor dining.
Excellent as usual.
Anniversary dinner...sat outside in a pod and it was a great experience. Service was impeccable and the food was delicious!
Great experience considering limited operating options. Love the chalets!
The outdoor set up was very disappointing. The Chalet’s lacked heat. The additional space heaters barely worked and with very few patrons we could not understand why we could not get additional space heaters. The chalets at Parc were so warm and comfortable, I expected a similar experience here. It was very disappointing.
Our server was amazing and the food always excellent
Besides being rather cold, everything was fantastic. Service was quick, hosts were great at managing take out orders and seating. Very accommodating with portable heaters as it was cold and windy.
We had Christmas Day dinner during pandemic. Since indoor dining was not allowed, we ate in the structure that was divided into 'rooms' by plastic partitions and the entire structure was open on one side. There was small heater in each 'room.' Although not ideal and was it freezing by the end of the meal, we felt safe and were able enjoy a good Christmas meal. The staff was very attentive and friendly, trying to make the best of the situation. The food was good and what you expect at Buddakan since the menu has not changed in 20 years.
We were seated outside on a freezing night.
The menu was Vintage Buddakan "You cant go wrong"
Not the warmest outdoor setup, but good food and quality service
Good food even though I was outside and it was cold.
Outdoor dining very cold!!
Christmas dinner with Amazing Friends!!!
The food was excellent! However just a suggestion because we were outdoors the food got cold quickly so I would suggest covers for the serving bowls etc. Edward is a fantastic waiter, attentive and friendly.
Love the outdoor hut!! Room and food was delicious
Date night disaster: Our Caesar salad arrive before our predinner cocktails, unceremoniously dropped at the table, before the silverware and appetizer plates. I’ll be generous and say the Caesar flavoring ruined our taste buds for what came next... but that’s only half true.
The waiter was awful, running between a few too many tables, paying closer attention to larger parties, presumably because of the tipping potential.
The outside area, although seemingly more attractive than others in the city, is unsuitable for eating warm menu items during cold winter nights.
Both the lobster fried rice and halibut main went cold almost immediately.
We left with what felt like $175 (before tip) wasted, not quite satiated enough, but both suffering heartburn and bloat.
We had a wonderful outdoor dining experience. Definitely different from dining inside the restaurant but very comfortable. Our server was polite and friendly. The host was also. The food was amazing as usual. I could have not asked for a better experience. Thank you for being available.
Our server Isaiah could be one of the worst servers I’ve endured. Few highlights. My fiends wife wine glass was completely dirty. He acknowledged later (it was so noticeable I don’t know how the bartender or he didn’t see it) and got her a new glass eventually. We ordered a lot and food was great as always. They forgot our crab fried rice. They forgot to bring out silverware. We were looking at our entrees for a good 5 minutes before we received silverware. Eating outside in the winter it’s not ideal as our food got cold by the time they brought some. Wanted a second round of drinks which he never brought out(even asking twice). And the cherry on top was dessert. We were all excited for the doughnuts and the waiter comes out and hands us the check. His response after all of these issues was “I just thought you guys wanted to get out of here”. The waiter was making an excuse about his other tables being chatty and needy. We spent over $400 and the service would’ve been better if I was at Applebee’s. Food still great might get take out again but will never dine in person
